    Phase 1 or 2??

    Believe on a phase 2 it needs to go to a permant live, ignition barrell would be a good place just remember to fuse it

    Phase 2, thats what i thought, i'm assuming it must be the live feed that allows the 0ne-touch to keep working after the ignition is turned off

    Is this a constant colour for live feed as i'm seeing it in a lot of the looms?

    A few questions then

    1) Do you have both pins in the in the correct fuse hole in the fuse board?

    2) Do you have the wire one side of the door grommet and not the other?

    This will help tell where there wire is

    1) yup, the fuse board has both pins in the correct hole so i was kinda hoping i'd just have to wire the doors in to the main loom...

    2) but of all the unused plugs in the footwell none of the other wires match up

    This particular wire colour i've seen in unrelated looms around the rest of the car

    Do you have this wore colour one side of the door grommet and not the other?

    If it's not even there you can pick it up in the passenger kickpanel, there you will see where the under carpet loom connects onto the dash loom and witha test light you will be able to find the wire

    TBH I think the wire will be a heavy red
